This was a most attractive destination point of tourists which was constructed from 1887-1889 as the entrance to the 1889 World's Fair by the engineer Gustave Eiffel.
It is an attractive eye catching monument which is 324 meters tall in Champ de Mars in Paris and it has become the global cultural icon of France.
The tower has three levels for visitors, with restaurants on the first and second levels. In fact, the Eiffel Tower is probably one of the first things that come to mind when a foreigner thinks of France. So naturally it has become an object of obsession and no doubt the subject of millions of wallpapers and screensavers worldwide.
